30 Jan 2014 | 09:00 am | 1 min. read

Andrew Hornigold, a Partner at international law firm Pinsent Masons, has been ranked among the five hundred most influential people in Britain by the Sunday Times.

Hornigold, a Corporate partner who specialises in advising companies in the technology sector, was listed in the Tech category alongside luminaries including Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the world wide web, and Peter Higgs, who won the Nobel prize for physics last year for his work on the Higgs Boson particle. 

Hornigold was recognised for his work advising some of the UK's most successful technology companies on a range of corporate issues including M&A and fundraising in particular. Pinsent Masons has a market-leading Technology practice which is ranked among the best in the country by Legal 500 and Chambers UK. The practice has gained particular recognition for its strength in mid-market M&A and its guidance for start-ups and emerging tech businesses which it delivers in part through its Bootlaw.com networking service. 

Andrew Hornigold says:

"It is a privilege to be included as the only lawyer on the list outside of the 'legal' category. This reflects in large part our commercial approach, which is to understand the sector in which our clients operate at least as well as we understand the black letter law. I am grateful to my clients across the sector for the support they have shown and the congratulations received."

The list was compiled by Debretts which assembled a panel of industry leaders and Sunday Times journalists to create the list. Others included in the full list include the Governor of the Bank of England Mark Carney, actor Sir Kenneth Brannagh, sportsman David Beckham and media magnate Chris Evans.
